Job 20v4-5 " Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth, That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?"
IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER HOW LONG it seems they have prevailed against you.
The scripture is very clear here; the wicked can not prevail for long.
They may seem to have the upper hand but it will be shortened.
They may have risen up in opposition against you;they will fall!
They may have been wagging their tongue against you; your God will short them up!
They may have been mocking you and despising you; you will be lifted above them!
In our text, it is clearly stated that the triumphing of the wicked is SHORT, the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment!
The seeming victory and triumph they have will be cut short.
The joy they have in mocking and belittling you will not last, it will be cut short.
They have laughed at you and mocked you, but God has put things in their future that will make them weep ceaselessly.
It is said of your God in Psalm 105v14-15 that, "He rebuked kings for their
sake and suffered none to do them harm, saying,touch not My anointed and do my prophets no harm!"
You are ordained for increase; you are called to greatness; you have been marked with the mark of success. No man born of a woman can stop
You have a destiny to fulfil; all that oppose you will be put to shame!
Many have mocked you but they will mock you no more.
The Lord your God is lifting you up.
Stand strong in your faith and worship of your God.
Your weeping has endured for the night; it is time for your joy.
Those that mocked you will not believe your greatness. They will not be able to fathom what God is doing in your life.
Hold on to His unchanging hands!
He is exalting your horn like that of a unicorn.
You are anointed with the oil of gladness above your fellows.
They will not believe your success!
God bless you richly with great grace and many
